Dr. Fred Simonton and staff are educating Gainesville and Oconee County patients with videos, patient testimonials, online resources, and more

Gainesville & Oconee County, Georgia (September 15, 2014) – Fred H. Simonton III, DMD always had a dream of helping people in need of oral and maxillofacial surgery, so he dedicated years of his life to gaining the experience necessary to become an expert in restoring the function and aesthetics of jaws, faces and mouths. Now, as a board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon, and an expert in the field of TMJ Disorders and corrective jaw treatment, Dr. Simonton is highly qualified to provide effective surgical treatment for a variety of oral and facial problems. Not only do Dr. Simonton and his friendly and skilled office and surgical staff maintain an all-encompassing dental care facility in Gainesville, but also in Oconee County, Georgia.

The two practice locations provide patients with treatments for a variety of oral and facial problems, including restoration of missing teeth with dental implant placement, extraction of impacted wisdom teeth, removal of failing teeth, treatment of TMJ disorders, jaw realignment with corrective jaw surgery, bone grafting, and surgical treatment of facial trauma injuries.

“We use the latest advances in dentistry to provide the best possible care for each and every patient,” said Dr. Simonton. “Treatment in our practices is only one part of the equation, though. Our goal as a practice is also to educate patients on everything they need to know in order to take proper care of their mouth prior to and following surgery to ensure the best outcome.”

Dr. Simonton and his staff members maintain two online resources that provide a full range of informative videos and content that are available to patients 24 hours a day. By visiting www.oralsurgeryofgainesville.com, patients of Gainesville and surrounding communities can discover everything they need to know prior to oral surgery, such as how to prepare for anesthesia, when to start fasting and what to bring to the appointment. In addition, patient testimonial videos showcase real-life stories from patients who have experienced the same procedure at Gainesville Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery.

“We’ve found that patients feel much more at ease when they hear from a patient who has gone through the same procedure,” said Dr. Simonton. “We encourage our patients to visit our online resources to learn more about their procedure both before they come in and following their surgery so they are well informed and heal properly.”

In addition to the online resource at www.oralsurgeryofgainesville.com, the practice maintains another resource for their patients in Oconee County and surrounding communities at www.athens-clarke-oconee-oral surgery.com. This website enables patients visiting Oconee County Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery to obtain proper education about their surgery. Additional resources, such as insurance and payment options, instructions for requesting an appointment, and pre-operative care guidelines offer comprehensive material that informs them of all facets of the treatment process from the moment they schedule their consultation, to the moment they walk out of post-op.
